The reason I searched for the meaning of the term 'despachante' was because last time I was in Brazil I hired one and had difficulties explaining what a despachante's role is to people here in England.
The information below is from the link you sent:
As an approved agent of the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade ( DFAIT ), we can handle all your import and export permit requirements for controlled goods. We'll give you advice on any product requirements or non-tariff barriers.
The firm is called Contract Custom Brokers and they are approved agents.
As far as I know, a despachante moves documents fast, due to excellent networking, inside knowledge of procedures at many rank levels, who to go to, where and when and gets them for you. And they are great!
On the other hand, a broker is someone who buys and sells goods or assets for others. Here in England you have mortgage brokers, share brokers, trading brokers, etc. They usually work for firms like banks, investment companies or are self-employed consultants. A well-paid job.
What do you think?
Have a fun weekend. Here Autumn is approaching and soon I'll be moving to warmer places.
